The Song of the Meanderers

Winding, meandering, leading on,
The road we take is fair and long.
We wander on from here to there,
And we will perform most anywhere.

One play, a castle lawn,
Next day, we’re sure to be gone,
Next play, a village square –
But when you come back, we won’t be there.

We’re going somewhere, we don’t know where,
We only know we must be there,
And when we come, it’s then we know,
There’s still a place we want to go.

We’ve practiced all our acts for weeks
We cannot hurry on and leave
We’ll show them to you, then we’ll depart –
Skipping on to the tune in our hearts.

Friendship: Definition Paragraph

"Friendship is one of the most satisfying things in the world," says Wilbur, a pig from the book Charlotte's Web. But just what is friendship? Some synonyms are love, affinity, or unity. Friendship is the opposite of hatred or enmity. A similar term is loyalty. When combined, friendship and loyalty can do amazing things. In Lord of the Rings, the Fellowship was chosen more for loyalty and friendship than power or strength. The reason for this was that good was fighting against evil, love against hate, and unity against enmity. Friendship is not only one of the most satisfying things in the world, but also one of the most amazing.
